What are Metal Channels?Metal channels are widely used in commercial and industrial industries as well as within DIY applications. Ideal for general fabrication, frame-making, construction along with smaller applications such as cable management. Metal channels are simple profiles made up of a single piece of metal formed to a U or C shape. The square edge profile of the U makes the channel strong making it suitable for fabrications and construction. Types of Metal ChannelAvailable in a range of sizes and materials, metal channels often feature equal height and width with various thicknesses. The equal dimensions make it similar to metal box section or square tube but offer up a wider range of application options with the removal of one full face creating the exposed centre channel. Metal channels are easy to cut with either hand or power saws and are suitable to use with a range of fixings. Easy to drill for use with bolts and other metal fixings as well as suitable for being welded.
